I visited this park in June. When I walked into the garden area I was in awe of the beautiful flowers! Then, we went to see the birds and other animals. My excitement quickly plummeted. I was so upset to see birds is tiny enclosures, much too small for their needs. I saw a beautiful hawks and falcons tied to... More

Ive been here a couple of times since this park is only one and a half hour away from my sisters house. The park is full of plants and flowers. Its a huge park so its better to wear comfortable shoes. They also have penguins and other bird species( you can feed the birds but you have to buy food).... More

Although it might be a bit farther away from all the other main attractions of Matsue city, I definitely recommend this attraction. When you first enter, there are many species of owl on display. When you enter the attraction, you will be greeted by their amazing greenhouse. Various flowers, both on the ground and hanging, are arranged in beautiful ways.... More

I was expecting to go for flowers, but the birds certainly were the main attraction. I've been to plenty of zoos, but this was the widest variety of birds I had ever seen in one place, many of which I had never seen before. They all seemed very well taken care of and content. If you're going fast you can... More

See flowers from all over the world, the owl show, see the birds up close and feed them. I only wished we had more time.

I've never had a chance to see so many different birds in my life! And you're not always viewing them from afar. Here, you can walk amongst the wildlife, in a very memorable park. I visited while working in Shimane, taken along with a group of 200 teenagers, and they were just as excited as me. Be prepared to walk,... More

I have been here a couple of times. It can get a varied reaction depending on the visitor. I've seen people gasp in awe at the largest indoor green house which is choc-a-bloc full of begonias, to others who yawn through it. (pretty impressive in my opinion!) I've seen some people wide-eyed with excitement when it came to holding a... More

If you are visiting Shimane Prefecture in Japan, Vogel park is a must see place. The variety of flowers within the greenhouses match every type of flowers you can see under different temperatures. The Birds are also a star attraction. Allowing them to perch on your hand and feeding them is a unforgettable experience.

My wife and I spent half a day in the park and found it very refreshing and beautiful. The well organised huge greenhouse was very impressive. The ability to see and be in close proximity to the birds made our day!

This park which is very well laid out and much larger than expected has both plants & birds to see. Like most attractions in Japan it's spotless and well organised. The birds were good as was the owl show, and I'm sure kids would love both, but for my group it was the greenhouse that was the star of the... More
